Police have arrested six students of Milimani Secondary School in Nairobi, who attempted to set ablaze the dormitory on Sunday night.
According to police, up to eight beds were burned down before the fire was put out.
The school’s administration reported that Sunday’s incident was the second attempt.
A similar attempt was made by the boys last Friday, but it was foiled by the school administration.
After the fire was put out, the school notified the cops, who arrested the guys.
The boys are under interrogation before being arraigned in court.
Milimani is the second school in a week to be impacted by a similar occurrence.
Last week, another private school in the city's Utawala area was affected, and eight females tied to the incident were arrested.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
